From 2011 to 2012, the girls’ top ten lost Sophie and Isabella, but gained Avery and Abigail. (It also seems to have lost Hailey and gained Haley, but this might be due to a typo in my source article.)

The boy’s top ten lost Ethan and Jayden, but gained William and Hunter. (Ethan was #2 last year, notably.)
